Hellhounds are mid to high level demons often given as a Slayer assignment to mid to high level players. Hellhounds are an excellent source of hard clue scrolls as they drop them frequently unlike other monsters, such as abyssal demons. However this is their only unique drop, excluding their bones.
As their combat level suggests, hellhounds are not an easy task. It's worth noting, however, that their high combat level is mostly reflective of their accurate and powerful attacks. Hellhounds have low defensive stats, and are weak to both Ranged and stab attacks. Players with a low Defence level should bring the best armour that they can afford as well as high healing food. Alternatively, the Protect from Melee prayer can be used nullify their attacks so high prayer bonus armour such as proselyte armour along with some prayer potions constitutes an effective although expensive strategy. Pray 'flashing' can dramatically reduce the cost of fighting them, however this requires close attention, and probably some food to correct mistakes. Since they occupy a large space of 2-by-2 squares, hellhounds can be easily safe-spotted in the Taverley Dungeon on rocks and columns and in the narrow corridors of the Stronghold Slayer Cave. A halberd is also a cheap, but slow, method for completing this slayer task or to pick up clues.
